They do make a shrink tubing with a type of sealant inside. We used to use 
these when I worked at Babcock & Wilcox. They are somewhat stiff but I think 
it maintain insulation at 2KV potential.

   That works for minor cracks and breaks in the insulation but these
leads are so brittle that replacement
is called for especially with the plate transformer at close to 2kv
RMS. Heat shrink is also not very flexable but I might use it for the
LV transformer and choke.

   I'm going to be turning this VK II chassis into an externally
modulated RF deck.
